Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

This stamp is horrible. It doesn't leave a paw print impression. It just dents the blank. I have no problems like this with my other stamps, just this one.
I honestly don't know how the example was created by this stamp. I compared it to the mason jar-a Beaducation original and there is no comparison. The stamp makes no impression on anything but paper. I hope Beaducation creates an original of this design. I would love to have a high quality paw stamp. This is the worst stamp I've ever bought.
avoid this stamp! impossible to get a clean impression. total waste of money...
Terrible stamp. No matter how hard I hit it I can't get it to make an impression.
Total waste of money.
